Apple’s Black Friday has already gone live in Australia, where the Cupertino company is offering Apple Store Gift Cards with the purchases. However, the offers seem to vary from region as the company is offering discounts in place of gift cards in couple of other countries.
Apple’s Black Friday deals are now appearing on the UK, France, Germany and other European Apple websites. The online stores have promotional discounts on the MacBooks, Apple TV, iPads, iPods and other accessories.
Apple, on its UK website is offering the MacBooks and the iMacs with a discount of £81, while the iPod touch saves you £25. The iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPad 2 are also up for grabs with a discounted price tag.
The Black Friday promotional offers in the US and Canada are also live now, but they settle for the same gift card promotions as Australia.
Apple’s Black Friday deal has gone live in Australia and slowly making its way around the world wherever the Apple Online Store is available. Unlike previous years where the company offered discounts on the products themselves, this year it is offering Apple Store Gift Cards with purchases.
The denomination of the Apple Store Gift Card depends upon the product you purchase. If you buy an iMac, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, you’ll get a A$150 gift card. An iPad Air will get you A$75 gift card and the iPad mini, iPad 2 and iPod touch will get you A$ 50 gift card. If you buy the iPod nano, you’ll get a A$ 25 gift card. There is no gift card available with the iPhone, at least in the Australian store.
The gift card deal is also available on some of the other products and accessories, such as the Apple TV, Parrot AR.Drone, Apogee JAM Guitar Input, with the denomination ranging from A$25 – 50 for the gift card.
Apple has never been known for its Black Friday deals and most of the time they are disappointingly low compared to what you might find from other online retailers. This year there is no discount at all but at least you’d be able to start off with some good apps or games after activating your device using the gift card.
